While relations between Israel and the USA are at their closest in decades, the Palestinian leadership has boycotted the White House since President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in December.

Rajoub said that the Council will respond to the "Deal of the Century" with a strategic vision in the political and organizational dimension in accordance with the resolutions of worldwide legitimacy, and the Council will be a road map towards unity of the Palestinian people.

At a press conference after the meeting, Pompeo was asked if the United States took a position on the recent protests at the Gaza-Israel border, in which almost 50 Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire.

Masked men holding wire cutters and calling themselves the Gaza "Fence Cutters' Unit" threatened to breach the border separating the Gaza Strip from Israel and to "liberate" the entire Jewish state, which they called their "occupied lands", from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

Also Sunday, the Israeli army said most of the deaths of Palestinians during the Gaza unrest have been unintentional.

Earlier in the evening, two Palestinians armed with tools meant to damage the border fence and knives were arrested after the infiltrated into Israel on the border with southern Gaza.

Rights activists say the system is unique because of its sophistication and the large number of people it controls- 2.5 million in the West Bank and 2 million in Gaza.

Shin Bet agents use seemingly irrelevant snippets of information to create the impression of omnipotence, she said.

"At that second, the individual thinks their entire life is an open ebook, that he should not cover something", mentioned Berda, who has written a ebook concerning the allow system.

In a statement to The Associated Press, the Shin Bet denied a hidden agenda, saying that security blocks are "solely derived from security considerations and the prevention of terrorism". The Shin Bet refuses to specify how many. Anybody who ever served jail time is sort of sure to have one, however others who're banned have been by no means in an Israeli jail.

Pompeo, the former Central Intelligence Agency director who headed overseas nearly immediately after he was sworn in on Thursday, even declined to make a slight criticism against the Israeli military for its use of live fire against Palestinian protesters in the blockaded sliver in the past few weeks. His opposition PTI has emerged as one of the leading parties in recent years promising "change".

Only a small number of people saw their bans lifted that day, according to those present. The 39-year-old sells $1.7 million of cut stones a year, including to Israel.
